Come Ride With Us!
Be ready to ride at the Markdale CP Rail Trail parking lot (County Road 12 west of Markdale) at 10am (registration 9am). This is a flash ride thrown together by our keen riders to enjoy the trails simply and without much ado. No promises, no formality, just riding.
Trail Route: A mix of public and private properties including the rail trail and some road running.
Participants: This ride is open to OFATV/EOTA members and non-members. A day pass for non-members cost $20. Memberships ($150) and day passes will be available for purchase.
Two-up riding is allowed and side-by-sides have limited range.
For young operators, aged 12 to 16, the ATV should be sized appropriately for the child’s weight. The child must be accompanied by an adult on the trail. Legally, the child cannot ride on the road without a valid Ontario driver’s licence (G2/M2). DGATV does not condone young operators riding on the roads without a licence.
Other: As with any ride, it is advisable to dress appropriately and have extra fuel, drinking water, snack, rain gear, bug spray, basic repair tools, bandaids, compass, map and cell phone on hand. Note that there may not be cell service in the area.
